Ryan: What -- what -- we were having such a good time, and now you want me to get out of here?

Annie: Ryan, Ryan, please, please just go.

Ryan: Ok, ok, just tell me what I did.

Annie: Nothing, nothing, nothing. I just really need you to leave. Please, I'll explain later. Ryan, if you care about me, you'll go.

[Ryan sighs]

Ryan: Ahem.

Zach: It wasn't all my dad's fault.  I had a chance to know Ethan, and I pushed him away.  Don't let me waste a single moment with our kids, ok?

Kendall: I won't, and you won't.

[A woman watches Kendall and Zach from behind some trees]

Bianca: Babe, Hi!

Zoe: Girlfriend!

Babe: Hey, you know, Little A and I are going to come back another time, and we'll call first.

Zoe and Bianca: No, no, no, no, no, no!

Bianca:  Don't be silly, please.

Zoe: We have extra cake.

Babe: Cake is probably the last thing we need. We are on a sugar high, huh? My little man here can't close his eyes, and he -- he wanted to wish a happy, happy birthday to his birthday twin, Miranda. I mean, if it's ok with his mama.

Krystal: Tad? Tad, where'd you go. I know you're here -- I can hear you breathing.

Adam: J.R. and Babe have gone out, and your champion Tad has abandoned you. So it's just you and me, and you seem to be at my mercy.

Krystal: Crazy coot. Huh -- you think you can spook me with the haunted house act? Get real.

Adam: Huh? My ears are still ringing from your shriek.

Krystal: Oh.

Adam: Obviously, your nerves are not quite what they used to be.

Krystal: Yeah, well, you're getting on my last one.

Adam: Hmm. The power will stay off until you vacate the premises. If you stay until tomorrow, there'll be no water. If you stay till next day, there will be no food in the cupboards. Your physical discomforts will compound daily until you vanish.

Krystal: I got through prison and 28 hours of labor, so physical discomfort is not a problem for me, but it is for a child. A 3-year-old child, Adam. Come on. You can punish your wife, but your own grandson?

Adam: Don't be ridiculous. While you suffer, our grandchild is going to be in my suite, enjoying all the comforts. All of the utilities work perfectly. He's going to be a perfectly happy little boy.

Bianca: Is that milk and sugar? Thank you.

Babe: Well -- oh, thank you, thank you.

Bianca: Thank you -- mm.

Babe: This should have happened a long time ago, but it didn't because of me. It's really wonderful seeing our kids playing together.

Bianca: This is exactly what we hoped for years ago.

Zoe: Well, I'm off. Ladies, good night, and gentleman.

Babe: Mmm. This was great.

Zoe: Bianca, thank you for a wonderful evening.

Bianca: Thank you for coming.

Zoe: The happiest of birthdays to you both.

Miranda: Hey!

Zoe: Hey!

Miranda: What about me?

Zoe: Babe, I will see your gorgeous face tomorrow morning at Fusion.

Babe: You know it.

Zoe: Bright and early -- well, maybe not early. Still on rock-star time.

[Babe and Zoe chuckle]

Babe: Bye, Zoe!

Bianca: Miranda, I need some more tea.

Babe: Mmm.

Bianca: I'm all out. I drank it all.

Babe: It's great tea.

Bianca: It was so good.

Babe: Birthday-girl tea.

Bianca: Mmm.

[Zoe chuckles as she leaves the apartment]

J.R.: Is Babe in there?

Zoe: Did she ask you to meet her? Babe is with Bianca. They're having a moment of significance. They deserve to have their private time.

J.R.: I'm sorry. When you picked up a new gender, did that come with a degree in psychology?

Zoe: Oh, God! Fine, go ahead. Barge in where you're not wanted. Shatter a moment that doesn't belong to you. Babe already suspects that your redemption is a sham. Confirm it. Show her once and for all that you're completely hopeless.

Zach: Ethan would have made a great big brother.

Kendall: Yeah. Well, you know, he is going to be a part of our children's lives. We'll tell Spike and the new baby all about him.

Zach: I pushed him away because I didn't think I could be a father to him, and I didn't want him to inherit the Cambias curse.

Kendall: Ok, this Cambias curse -- I told you the night that we made this child there was no curse. It's not real, Zach.

[Zach sighs]

Kendall: It was your father's insane need to control you and Michael's crazy need to lash out at the world, because he never got your dad's approval.

Zach: I don't want my kids to look at me the way I looked at my dad. The way that Ethan looked at me.

Kendall: When he or she looks at you, they'll see what I see -- a brave, strong --

Zach: Yeah.

Kendall: Yeah. Caring man who loves his family. You need to believe that, Zach. It's true.

Zach: I want to be a good father to these kids. I do.

Kendall: Mm-hmm.

Zach: I think I can do it, with their mom's help.

Kendall: Well, you got it.

Ryan: Annie, please can I come back inside. Please?

Annie: Ryan, I had a great time tonight. It was an absolutely magical evening. You made my fairy tale come to life. Every detail was perfect.

Ryan: Well, the end wasn't so hot. I mean, obviously something happened, and I just want to try to fix it.

Annie: No, honestly, no. Could you find Julia on your way out and tell her to come up here, please?

[Music plays]

Julia: Oh, I can't.

Amanda: Oh --

Julia: But if you have a legal dictionary, I'd take that.

Amanda: Why? Is somebody in trouble?

[Julia sighs]

Julia: No. I'm boning up on the nurses' collective bargaining agreement, and the language is a little dense, to say the least.

Amanda: Oh, you got my hopes up. I thought maybe there for a second, somebody was coming after Del. I still think he may have broken the boiler to get us the night off at ConFusion.

[Julia chuckles]

Del: Hey, stake me 100 bucks, I'll give you 50% of everything I make. Easy money.

Jamie: Run.

Jonathan: I better hide Kathy and Emma's piggy banks.

Di: No hand-outs, Del.

Ryan: Hey!

Di: Hey.

Ryan: Hey, hey, can I talk to you in private for a second -- do you mind?

Julia: Hey, no problem.

Ryan: Yeah, thanks!

Julia: What -- what's going on?

Ryan: Annie needs you.

Julia: What. What? What is it?

Ryan: I don't know. Everything was going great, just great. Then she told me to get lost.

Julia: Uh-huh. Just like that? No reason?

Ryan: She wouldn't even look at me.

Julia: Uh-huh. You must've done something.

Ryan: Yeah, well, I don't know what that something is, and honestly I'm not going to leave here until I do, so please would you help me out a little bit?

Julia: Uh -- ok.

Ryan: Thanks.

Jonathan: Hey, is Annie ok?

Ryan: No, I blew it, and I don't even know how.

[Knock on door]

Annie: Who is it?

Julia: Annie, it's Julia.

Annie: Are you alone?

Julia: Yep.

Annie: Ryan's not with you?

Julia: Hmm -- No.

Annie: You swear?

Julia: Annie, I swear. Open up.

Annie: Be honest. Is this what I think it is?

Ryan: So I don't know -- everything was -- it was going great, and then all of a sudden out of nowhere, I'm ejected. Don't know why.

Di: Ryan?

Ryan: Yeah?

Di: Can I just say something?

Ryan: Please, help me.

Di: Just for what it's worth --

Ryan: Ok.

Di: I just think Annie's the total package, and I think she deserves the total package -- when it comes to love. She's a great friend, Ryan, and she's a fantastic mother, and she's just a really cool lady.

Del: Well, who says Annie's not cool and what was this about a package?

Jamie: Yeah, what's up? What's the big secret?

Del: Annie's not getting any.

Jonathan: Oh.

Ryan: Wow. No. Actually, not the problem.

Amanda: You mean, there's a problem besides Del?

Jonathan: Ryan asked Annie to marry him.

Ryan: Thank you, Jonathan.

Aidan: And the answer was no?

Jonathan: She gave him the boot.

Ryan: Ok -- thanks, again.

Del: Ouch!

Amanda: Ok, look, maybe you just took her by surprise, and she felt overwhelmed. She needed some time alone to process.

Jamie: Or maybe she wanted more of a romantic setting than an old dusty bedroom.

Jonathan: Ahem. Ahem -- are you getting all this?

Aidan: Maybe she sees you as a friend rather than a husband.

Di: No, Annie is nuts about Ryan.

Del: Well, if she loves the guy, and there's plenty of action between the sheets, what's the problem?

Di: Del!

Del: What?

Jamie: Like I said, I think it's your delivery.

Amanda: Oh, did you memorize your proposal, because free-styling can be risky?

Del: If you need help with the rap, the love doctor is in.

Ryan: Oh, thank you.

Del: Yeah, yeah, yeah.

Julia: Oh, yes, ma'am, you have a fever.

Annie: Oh.

Julia: Sore throat, headache?

Annie: Yeah.

Julia: Yeah. I would say definitely you've got it. I'm assuming this is your first time?

Annie: Yep.

Julia: What about Emma?

Annie: Well, she was immunized at 18 months, but she still got some.

Julia: Hmm. Well, hop into bed. Drink plenty of fluids and steer clear of everybody downstairs until I have a chance to talk to them. I'm going to give you some acetaminophen for your aches and pains. And you're not at high risk for any complications, but if you have any difficulty breathing or you develop a cough, then we'll call the doctor, ok?

Annie: Ok. Thanks, Julia.

Julia: Sure. Well, Ryan will be glad that you're not angry with him.

Annie: No, no, no, no, no, no! Ryan can't see me like this.

[Music plays]

Ryan: Everybody, I want to say that your insights are very helpful. Obviously, you've had a lot of classes in -- you know, dealing with marital problems.

Aidan: Listen, mate, you're not alone, because men for centuries have been trying to work women out, and it is impossible.

Del: Yeah.

Di: Oh, that is such a cop-out.

Amanda: Ok -- seriously. Just because something takes effort doesn't mean it's impossible.

Ryan: Yeah.

Amanda: You just have to work at it.

Ryan: Right.

Amanda: Extend yourself.

Ryan: Ok.

Del: Ooh -- exactly what I was thinking.

Amanda: Oh, come on!

Di: What are you doing? Get back here!

Julia: So, who here has had the chickenpox?

Di: Oh -- has had? Had?

Del: Yeah, once or twice -- years ago.

Ryan: Annie.

Di: No way.

Ryan: Annie has the chickenpox.

Julia: Yep. No doubt about it.

Ryan: Yeah, let's go!

Di: I hope you've had them!

Jamie: That's awesome.

Bianca: Three years ago tonight

Babe: I'll never forget it.

Bianca: Oh, ooh. If I had any idea how bad that storm was going to be, there's no way I would've let us get in that car.

Babe: That poor car. I remember the road was right by the riverbank, and the water just kept rising. We had to pull over. We just held on to each other and prayed.

Bianca: I don't -- I don't know if it was because of the stress and the panic, but I went into labor.

Babe: And of course, I played it off like it was nothing. No biggie, it's just a cramp or something.

Bianca: Oh, you were so calm. You knew exactly what to do! Not me. I was like petrified.

Babe: No, stop! You were such a champ. You were great, and I remember when I told you to give that one last push, and then out came beautiful, perfect Miranda.

Bianca: Hmm. Oh. Oh! Oh! And as if delivering my child weren't enough, I passed out and then you went into labor yourself.

Babe: I missed you so much. And I didn't even realize how much until right now.

Bianca: We don't have to miss each other anymore.

Krystal: Adam, where the heck is Tad? He just disappeared -- what'd you do to him?

Adam: Why do you care? You said your heart belongs to me, hmm? Why do you care? Why do you care about that moron?

Krystal: I don't care about that moron. Adam, you are my one and only. But right now, you're acting about as mean as a snake. God knows what you're capable of.

Adam: Well, if I'm so dangerous, why don't you go hiking right through that door, right now?

Krystal: No, No! I'm not scared of you, Adam. Now, fess up -- where is Tad?

Adam: Well, it's dark and it's late, and he's not fondling you. So -- except in your imagination. No, I -- I guess my guess is Tad is probably sitting on his duff somewhere. Yeah -- that'd be it.

[In another room, Tad is writhing on the floor, bound and gagged]

Zach: What are you thinking, huh? What are you thinking, Spike man? You want a brother, you want a sister, or you want twins?

Kendall: Oh! Ooh, ooh --

Zach: What are you thinking?

Kendall: Twins.

Zach: Let me eat that.

Kendall: Do you believe he said "twins"? Yeah, you'd love that, wouldn't you? Make me so huge, I can't even fit though the door.

Zach: I'm thinking brother -- you know why? That'd be three of us, we'll outnumber your mom, and we'll be in control of the remote control --

Kendall: Oh.

Zach: And the toilet seat and the fridge --

Kendall: Oh, yeah, ok, but --

Zach: And anything we want to watch.

Kendall: Oh, you like that?

Kendall: Yeah, you like that. I'll bring in maybe your Aunt Bianca and your cousin Miranda and then we'll make it even, or better yet, I'll bring in my mom.

Zach: Oh, come on, don't scare the kid. We're having fun right now -- come here. Ah! I know what we'll do, we'll have twins.

Kendall: Oh.

Zach: Because then it'll be Spike and Butch and --

Kendall: No --

Zach: Tank Slater.

Kendall: Butch, no Tank.

Zach: Come on, let me -- hear me out for a second.

Kendall: All right.

Zach: That'll be the front line then all we need from your mom is a set of triplets -- goalie, two defensemen, we're all set.

Kendall: Oh, ok. Yeah, I think that your step-daddy wants me to be his hockey broodmare from Detroit. He's crazy. He's losing his mind, isn't he?

Jamie: Julia, the next hand, I'm dealing you in.

Julia: No, I can't, I can't.

Del: Jules, just spot me the cash, I'll play for you.

Jonathan: Yeah.

Amanda: Give it up, Del.

Aidan: Hey, what are you working on over there anyway?

Julia: Oh, I don't know. I must have been out of my mind. I volunteered to make a presentation to the nurses' committee about our bargaining agreement.

Jamie: Contract negotiations are up.

Julia: The hospital board and the nurses are light-years apart in the amount of our next raise so --

[Knock on door]

Jonathan: I got it.

Di: Thank you.

Amanda: Cheater.

Jamie: Let's make this interesting --

Amanda: Stop looking at my cards.

Jonathan: Lily, hi.

Lily: Good evening. I -- I'm here to see Aidan.

Ryan: Annie, come on. Let me in. When a man wants to spend the rest of his life with a woman, he doesn't let a thing like chickenpox get in the way. He doesn't. He wants to go to her bedside and tend to her every need.

Annie: That's really sweet, Ryan, but there's no way you're seeing me like this.

Ryan: I want to see you all kinds of ways. I mean, for better, for worse and richer and poorer, in health and in chickenpox.

Annie: Again, touching, but it's not going to happen.

Ryan: I got a better idea.

[Annie screams when Ryan opens the door]

Babe: Ooh, look at that.

Miranda: I can play with it.

Babe: Yes, you can.

Miranda: Yeah, because --

Babe: Do you remember when we were pregnant, we would always joke that these two would be attached at their hip?

Bianca: Yes.

Bianca: That they would be best friends just like their mothers.

Babe: And then it all seemed like a bad dream, a wish that would never come true.

Bianca: Well --

Miranda: It's a little game.

Bianca: Miracles do happen. Yeah, it's a game.

Miranda: What did it say?

Babe: Because of you.

Bianca: Because of them.

Babe: Hmm. Let me see.

Miranda: You have to find her name.

[Knock on door]

Babe: Somebody --

Bianca: Oh, excuse me. Here.

Babe: Let me see that game. Can I see that?

Bianca: I'm going to answer the door, ok?

Babe: Ooh. What is it?

Miranda: It's a --

Babe: Oh, I love her! She's pink!

Miranda: No, it's purple!

Babe: Ooh! Ooh, that ice cream cone --

J.R.: I hope I'm not interrupting.

Miranda: Yummy.

Babe: J.R., did you follow me here?

J.R.: No, no. When I noticed that you took off with Little A, I realized there was only one place that you could be today. Our son shares a birthday with one very special little girl.

Miranda: Me!

J.R. and Babe: You!

Babe: Birthday girl.

J.R.: Happy birthday, Miranda.

Miranda: Ah.

J.R.: You don't remember me, do you? Look, if I'm intruding, I'll leave. I mean, I --

Miranda: I -- I got it!

J.R.: I don't want to barge in where I'm not wanted. But if you're ready to call it a night, I'll be more than happy to give you a hand bringing our son home.

Krystal: Tad!

Krystal: Tad? Huh? What?

Krystal: What, what, what, what?

Tad: Don't take off the tape!

Krystal: Oh, oh -- sorry.

Tad: Ah!

Krystal: Sorry, sorry. What happened? What happened?

Tad: Ugh -- I mean, aside from the fact that you just tore off half my face?

Krystal: What?

Tad: Somebody banged me over the head --

Krystal: Oh.

Tad: Most likely, your lunatic husband. Get my feet, will you? I can't feel my legs anymore.

Krystal: Oh, sorry.

Tad: I woke up, I was in here dressed up like a Thanksgiving-Day turkey.

Krystal: Oh.

Tad: How the heck did you find me?

Krystal: Oh, well, the 15th room was the charm.

Tad: Yeah, thank God for that. What happened to the lights?

Krystal: Oh, Adam shut off the power.

Tad: Uh-huh. See? See what I mean? Need I say more? Get me out of here, would you? I'm telling you -- he's nuts. Krystal, he's gone crazy.

Krystal: No, listen, I know --

Tad: He's lost it.

Krystal: Exactly where Adam is, but you staying here is only making it worse.

Tad: Listen, that is my baby you are carrying onboard. As far as I'm concerned, too many people -- including you -- have kept her away from me for far too long, so until she's born, I am not taking my eyes off your belly.

Krystal: Tad, if you really cared about this little girl, you would go away and let me work this out with Adam. I promise you the longer that you shove your face in his face, then he's just going to get madder.

[Someone quietly closes the door and locks it]

Tad: Yeah, and it means the more stressed out and on edge you're going to get. So until that -- ah! -- Until that time, why don't we do the right thing by that baby, huh? Blow this Popsicle stand.

Krystal: What?

Tad: No, I can't -- I can't get the door open. Give me that flashlight.

Tad: I don't believe it.

Krystal: What?

Tad: He glued the door closed.

Krystal: Oh!

Tad: He actually glued the door closed. Adam! Adam!

[Tad pounds on door]

Tad: I swear you better run while you can!

Babe: I tried flipping the switch in the entryway, but didn't work. Hmm.

J.R.: What's with the lights?

Adam: Power shortage.

J.R.: Oh, yeah, right. You couldn't get Krystal and Babe out of the house by getting them arrested, barricading the walls and doors and windows. So you're just going to keep us all in the dark.

Adam: The three of you inspire me.

J.R.: Hmm.

Babe: Hmm. Really? Mama must have told you how much fun we had when we couldn't pay our electric bills. I'm going to have to ask her if she remembers the time that we made grilled cheese by candlelight.

Adam: Can't wait to smell that. Oh, by the way, Little -- Little Adam's crib is in my suite. It has power.

Babe: Where is Mama?

Adam: Uh -- she went to bed. I think in the East Wing. She said something about a mattress that is better for her back. I just came down here to get some peace and quiet. I just don't really want to talk about Krystal anymore. I don't want to think about Krystal anymore. I don't give a damn about Krystal anymore!

Krystal: Well, there's no access to the tunnels from this room, and I don't have my cell phone.

Tad: Yeah. And that land line is dead.

Krystal: Oh. We're trapped, Tad. And I tell you, Adam's temper's only going to get worse the longer you stay here

Tad: The longer I stay? You think that has anything to do with it? Come on, Krystal, what do you think's going to happen the minute I leave? You think Adam's going to turn into a big teddy bear? It's real simple. It's a real simple equation here, ok? Two men, one baby. He's not going to give a damn about any child that is not his own flesh and blood. There's not going to be a happy family reunion. He's not going to give that baby the time of day, which means you have to make a hard decision, ok?

Krystal: Oh --

Tad: You have to pop out of this fantasy and decide what you need.

Krystal: I don't have to do anything, Tad! I am eight and a half months pregnant! I am glued in a dark room by a man who hates my guts with a man who is threatening to take my baby!

Tad: Ok, point taken. I got it. Just try to relax for me, ok?

Krystal: Yeah, ok.

Tad: Well, we don't want you to pop just yet, all right?

Krystal: Yeah.

Tad: Tell you what. Just try to lie down and --

Krystal: Oh.

Tad: Get a little sleep and --

[Krystal sighs]

Tad: I'll do some thinking.

Bianca: Hi. What -- what?

Zoe: Oh, I wanted to give it to Miranda at the party, but it came a little late.

Bianca: Oh. Do you mind if I sneak? I promise I won't spoil the surprise or anything.

Zoe: Ok, ok.

Bianca: Oh. Ooh. Oh. That is beautiful.

Zoe: Thank you. Open it.

[Music box plays]

Zoe: Behind the moon you'll find it, way beyond the stars. It could be around the world

Kendall: Spikey sleeping? Ah!

Zach: Yeah. He's down for the count.

Kendall: Oh. Hmm.

Zach: This may sound corny --

Kendall: Uh-huh.

Zach: But there is this moment, right before I put him down in his crib when I'm looking at him, I think "How cool is this?" This beautiful, innocent child trusts me enough to fall asleep in my arms.

Kendall: Hmm.

Zach: I can't wait until there's two of them.

Kendall: Hmm.

Zach: You know, I -- I just want them to count on me, you know?

Kendall: Hmm. Zach, you do not have to prove anything. You've already proven that we can trust you. In big, big ways. Like when you barricaded yourself in the hospital.

Zach: Hmm.

Kendall: In my hospital room, and you -- you fought to make sure that Spike was born strong and healthy. And in small, everyday ways, like when you put Spike to sleep. This baby of ours is going to be born trusting you and loving you from the second it comes out. What are you thinking?

Zach: The warehouse in Vegas when my dad left that note there.

Kendall: Mm-hmm.

Zach: It said "Kendall chose to save your life, instead of hers. " No one's ever loved me that much.

Kendall: I didn't choose your life. I chose our life. This life. You and me and Spike and the little munchkin on the way -- our whole family. It's only going to get better, Zach. We are only going to get better.

[Zach and Kendall kiss]

Ryan: Do you remember how psyched you were when you found out I left Cambias? You were saying that -- that you finally realized that I wasn't perfect. Well, that's how I feel about you and chickenpox, ok? Gorgeous, funny, incredibly intelligent. All these things, and yet, you have a flaw.

Annie: 14 million round, red ones, and counting.

Ryan: Yes, you are a genius children's storyteller, yes, you're an incredible mother, and an incredible friend, and an incredible employee. All of these attributes -- it's really kind of amazing. You're hiding a very secret flaw. Are you, my favorite Comp Lit major, familiar with the Greek God Narcissus, who fell in love with his own reflection?

Annie: Of course.

Ryan: Well, I got to say, you're just like him. Vain, very vain.

Annie: I am not vain.

Ryan: What? Did you say something?

Annie: I am so not vain!

Ryan: I can't hear you through the -- you know, the --

Annie: I said I'm not vain!

Ryan: What did you say? Did you --

Annie: No, no, no, no, I mean. . . .

Annie: Oh -- gross.

Ryan: No, it's not gross.

Annie: It's so gross.

Ryan: No, kiss me.

[Music plays]

Aidan: I do background checks all the time. If you need me to run one for you, it'll be easy.

Lily: Yes, and -- and this one might take substantially less amount of your time, because I'm only interested in the bad things this person has done. Things that they'd be ashamed of, and they wouldn't want anyone else to know.

Aidan: Well, who is this person?

Lily: Barbara Montgomery. I want to blackmail her into leaving town.

Aidan: You do know that blackmail is illegal, lily.

Lily: Yes, but it's highly effective. It's -- it's worked over 97% of the times in my mystery books.

Aidan: Well, you know what else works? Patience. Eventually, she'll go back to wherever she came from.

Lily: But there's no evidence of that. Besides, eventually is nonspecific and inadequate. I want Barbara to leave right now.

Aidan: Come over here. Did she do something to hurt you?

Lily: No, not -- not me directly, but she upsets my family. Sean and Erica. Therefore, she upsets me. And she invades people's space.

Aidan: Your personal space?

Lily: Everyone's. Especially my dad's. So do you think you can help me?

Aidan: I wish I could, but I don't see how.

Lily: If I can't get rid of Barbara with blackmail, I -- I'll just have to another way.

J.R.: I'm glad that you're up.

Babe: I was just headed to bed.

J.R.: Babe, wait. The whole way home, I couldn't help but think about the night that Little Adam and Miranda were born.

Babe: J.R., Please, I'm tired.

J.R.: No -- if I could have just been there when you went into labor, things could have been so much different, we could have avoided so many mistakes, been spared tons of regrets.

Babe: J.R., that was a long time ago. And "what ifs" -- they're pointless. It's over, and we can't go back.

J.R.: Babe, well, just -- wait. There's more.

J.R.: I know that you don't want to reminisce about our wedding a year ago. But today, I couldn't help but give you this gift.

Babe: Whatever it is, I don't want it.

J.R.: Just -- please, open it. No strings attached.

Babe: What is this?

J.R.: It's a deed to a piece of property. It's on a hillside overlooking a private lake. Now, if we work it out -- and I know that the odds are slim -- if we're able to pull through, we could build our house on that piece of land.

Babe: J.R., it's -- it's --

J.R.: No, even if we're not together, I still want you to have it for you and Little Adam. I mean, I remember the way that you lit up the first time I suggested that we find our own place. Now, whether I'm there or not, I still want you to have this dream house. The one with the eat-in kitchen. The one with the fireplace. The one with the vegetable garden. The way that you always wanted it. Please -- just think about it.

Julia: You know, it's -- it's really hard to calculate a cost-of-living increase when you're doing that.

Jamie: Well, how about if I could just make all that silly work go away? Seriously, I'll write you a check for the difference of what the nurses want and what the board is willing to give them.

Julia: Oh. Well, that is very generous, but that is not how it works. The nurses don't want charity, they want the hospital to recognize their hard work and give them a raise.

Jamie: I'll give you a big fat raise.

Julia: Oh --

[Julia chuckles]

Jonathan: I keep thinking that I'm over her. That I've moved on. But every time I see her --

Amanda: It all comes flooding right back

Jonathan: I went to Cambias to apply for a job. I walk into Zach's office. Guess who's there -- Lily. He hired her as his assistant. So I saw her, I turned right back around, changed my mind, walked out of the office.

Amanda: There will be a ton of other jobs, Jonathan. Any company would be happy to have you.

Jonathan: Hmm. Speaking of -- Ryan thinks that maybe I should move on from my management job at ConFusion.

Amanda: You've been overqualified since day one. And it will be good for me to run the place by myself, and it'll be good for you to get out there, show them what you got.

Jonathan: Thank you.

Amanda: Don't thank me. I am about to win all your money.

[Jonathan chuckles]

Amanda: Come on.

Barbara: Hmm. Lily, hi. Would you like to join me? I could make you a hot tea or a cocoa.

Lily: Actually, I'd like to implement my revised plan to make you go away. I was going to blackmail you with something bad from your past, but then I realized that blackmail is illegal, so I came up with another idea.

Barbara: Blackmail me, Lily? Why would you want to blackmail me?

Lily: Cartesian Geometry says the shortest distance between two points is a straight line, so I'm willing to take a direct approach. I want you to leave Pine Valley.

Barbara: What if we go shopping tomorrow? Would you like that?

Lily: No. I don't want to go shopping with you. I don't like you at all.

[Music plays as Krystal tries to rest while Tad works on unsticking the bedroom door and Adam stands on the other side crying.  Downstairs, Babe stares at the deed J.R. gave her while he watches her unseen. Zoe leaves Bianca's apartment with a hug and kiss.  Ryan gently applies lotion to Annie's chickenpox, as Zach and Kendall lie in each other's arms.  An unknown woman strokes Ethan's headstone at the cemetery.]

>> On the next "All My Children" --

Lily: I thought she wanted to come in.

Jack: "She" who?

Lily: The woman that was peeking outside the window.

Tad (to J.R.): I want him as far away from Krystal as he can possibly get.

[Adam wakes up in his boardroom completely naked]

Woman: It can't be Mr. Chandler.

Adam: What the devil are you all staring at? Martin, you're dead.
